A heart wrenching clip from a border patrol agent’s body camera has been released, showing a young migrant child crying because he was abandoned near the US-Mexico border.
The boy explained that he was abandoned by a group of illegal immigrants and was afraid of being kidnapped.
“It’s that I was coming with a group and they abandoned me and I do not know where they are at,” the young boy said to the agent at the border in Texas.
“You do not know where they are at? They left you alone?” asked the border patrol agent.
The child, who continued to cry, explained that his parents had sent him with a group to break into the United States and were not with him.
“At the end they abandoned me. I have come here to ask you for help,” the terrified boy said.
The agent went on to ask the young boy if his group told him “to come ask for help,” but the the child replied, “no, I am coming because if I did not, where am I going to go? Somebody could abduct me, kidnap me. I am scared.”
Check out what the Daily Mail reported:
The incident reportedly took place east of Rio Grande City on April 1 after the border agent had finished his shift, his friend Anjel Hernandez wrote on Facebook.
Univision reported that the child, whose age and nationality have not been made public by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, spent the entire night trekking through the Rio Grande Valley region after his unlawful entry into the country.
U.S. Border Patrol El Paso Sector chief Gloria Chavez told the network that parents should think about their children’s well-being each time they are sent alone to cross the perilous Mexico-United States border.
The Biden border crisis is getting so bad that President Joe Biden may move forward with the construction of former President Trump’s border wall.
During a conversation with ICE last week, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed that Biden may finish “gaps in the wall” to limit the amount of illegal immigration at the southern border.
“It’s not a single answer to a single question. There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” Mayorkas said according to The Washington Times. “The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended. But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished.”
According to the report, Mayorkas specifically said the “particular projects” included “gaps,” “gates,” and areas “where the wall has been completed but the technology has not been implemented.”
The report also said that there is much more to the border than just the wall considering it also provides technology for border patrol as well as “high-speed roads.”
